KARACHI : Pakistan Navy Fleet on Friday tested its fire power in the North Arabian Sea to assess the lethality, precision and efficacy of its weapon systems.

This was announced in an ISPR (Navy) press release issued here on Friday.

It said that Admiral Noman Bashir, Chief of the Naval Staff, witnessed the event.

This included successful firing of a variety of missiles and torpedoes from PN ships, submarines and aircraft.

Commander Pakistan Fleet, Vice Admiral Tanveer Faiz, was overall Incharge of the firing serial.

Chief of the Naval Staff on this occasion expressed his complete satisfaction on the operational readiness of PN fleet and commended the officers and men for their commitment and professionalism.

The weapons tested included newly inducted weapon systems, such as anti surface missiles from F-22 P Frigate and air-to-surface missiles from P3C aircraft.

An important feature of the event was firing of subsurface-to-surface missiles from Agosta 90B submarines. The target set was successfully engaged.

Earlier, the weapons firing zone spread over hundreds of miles at sea was cleared of all merchant ships and fishing craft through extensive range clearance operations to ensure safe conduct of the activity.

While reassuring Pakistan Navy’s commitment of defending the motherland, this strike capability would also send a message of deterrence to anyone harbouring nefarious designs against Pakistan, the ISPR (Navy) press release added.
